Exhibition / United States

Hold your breath, dance slowly

May 12, 2016 - October 9, 2016

ACC support allowed Walker Art Center to host the first US solo museum exhibition of artist Lee Kit, which features work from the past five years. Originally from Hong Kong and based in Taiwan, Lee creates poetic object-based installations fashioned from everyday materials and household items such as soap, towels, cardboard boxes, and plastic containers, which he transforms through subtle gestures of painting, drawing, and placement.
